I Couldn’t Resist!

When I saw the card above in a local art supply store, I just had to buy it to hang in my studio. This quote is appropriate for all people, artists and non-artists alike. It speaks to increasing one’s quality of life.

For artists, however, this observation is something to be reminded of from time to time. Too often I see artists that seize upon a formula that worked for them in the past, and cling to it like a life preserver. They stay within that comfort zone at the expense of exploring and pushing the boundaries of their creativity. Fear of failure is certainly a real possibility, but it is within this disappointment of failure that comes the motivation and driving fire that fuels and tests the soul’s ability to soar to new heights!
